DFCC Bank supports Royal International School

18 April, 2021

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to leave its mark on our lives, businesses, and the Sri Lankan economy.

Slowly but steadily we embarked on the collective journey of returning to normalcy. We owe it to the unfaltering dedication and hard work of our frontline workers and officials who have enabled this process. Organisations today have been able to adapt to the new normal and resume activities, with the continued support of essential services such as their banking partners.

One such story about an uplifting partnership comes from Chairperson of Royal International School Kurunegala, Ms. Sandra Wanduragala, and the support rendered from her banking partner, DFCC Bank. 

“When we went into lockdown in March last year, it brought all our academic and administrative duties to a halt. It was a truly testing time, as we were actively making strides with our development projects during the time. For years, our primary and secondary schools were in separate locations, with the latter being opened in our own five-acre premises, with state-of-the-art facilities constructed with the support of funds provided by DFCC bank,” said Wanduragala.

“However, during the pandemic we faced an unexpected roadblock when the owners of the building where our primary school was housed requested us to vacate with urgent effect, and we were still in the process of building the primary building at our new premises. Understanding the need of the hour, DFCC Bank stepped in and expedited the process to free funds that helped us develop the building, which we opened in January,” she said.
